During this time, seeking care for issues other than COVID-19 is particularly important for people with underlying conditions. Left unmanaged, these conditions may compromise your immune system and further increase your chance of severe illness from COVID-19.

Video Visit

A video visit is a simple, secure and convenient way to have a visit with a doctor using a mobile phone, computer or tablet device. Video visits can be used to see a primary care doctor or a specialist like a cardiologist or OB/GYN for example. You can schedule video visits with your current doctor as well as with a new doctor or specialist. Simply call the doctor’s office, and they will schedule the video appointment.

Once your doctor schedules a video visit, download the app, “NYP.” The doctor’s office will provide you with instructions on how to easily and successfully create an account and prepare for your video visit.

Important In-person Appointments

Regular check-ups and annual physicals are also important because your physical condition may change without any noticeable side effects. The below are a few things your doctor may check:

  • Blood sugar: Some people have prediabetes and don't know it
  • Blood pressure: High blood pressure raises your risk of heart disease
  • Depression: Low mood can negatively impact your daily life

Office Safety Precautions

Your health and safety is our top priority. Therefore, we are taking many safety precautions for in-person appointments. For example, we are now doing the following:

  • Offering remote registration and check-in to eliminate or minimize your time in the waiting room.
  • Repeatedly disinfecting our offices and exam rooms.
  • Using the proper personal protective equipment.
  • Spacing out appointments to minimize the number of patients in the office.
